Pride Part 1

Becoming one with Him. This process has plenty of building but it also has some de-construction. It's a process of peeling off the identity that's been developing for the last 40 something years. So here goes a layer.... the first of many.

So the first thing that must be addressed is my stinking pride. My pride loves me but I have begun to hate Him. I want out. My pride doesn't want to let go. He doesn't want to give up on the relationship. But I'm standing here with my high heeled foot jammed up against the open door pointing the way out. It's an ugly breakup but it's a relationship that's just not gonna last and I'm ending it.

I've catered to my pride long enough. I gave into Pride's ridiculous demands, his empty threats, and his one-sided thinking. My pride has tried to block me from being with the One I really love. He tried to divide us- he tried to tell me that I was strong on my own. But pride lied to me. He also tried to separate me from people that I needed. Pride tried to convince me that I was always right. Pride said that I didn't need to be the first to apologize. Pride is the King of Excuses. 

More later...
